Russia Wants “Balance of Power” in Afghanistan

MOSCOW – Russian President Vladimir Putin and US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo discussed the issue of Afghanistan, alongside the issues pertaining to Syria, Libya, Venezuela, and Iran, Russian presidential aide Yury Ushakov said on Tuesday.
Both the leaders agreed that Russia and the United States should cooperate more actively on settlement in Afghanistan, Ushakov said.
“On the issue of Afghanistan, the [Russian] president and the [US] secretary of state also noted rather good cooperation between specialists of our countries. Moreover, our president noted that settlement in Afghanistan is a rather complicated issue as the process itself is difficult. At the same time, the positions of the Taliban are getting stronger”.
“So, we need to step up cooperation and try to achieve the balance of power in this country,” Ushakov said.
On April 25, representatives of Russia, China and the United States held a trilateral meeting in Moscow on the Afghan situation. After the talks, the sides called on the Taliban to join talks with the Afghan authorities as soon as possible.
